The media can no longer ignore
Obama and Hillary Clinton´s problems

Washington Examiner [DC], by Noemie Emery

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 7/16/2014 5:15:16 AM

It had to come sometime, and it came in one very bad week for the Democrats: that the many big problems with Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama finally grew too great for the press to ignore. Obama in his own different way is heading towards Nixon-like levels of weirdness, as, beaten down by the failures regarding his ventures, he appears to have quit his own job. A.B. Stoddard of the Hill says in effect he has stopped being president and chooses to live in a world of his own, shutting out the problems that have become overwhelming, giving dinners where he talks

The only female the Butcher of Benghazi cares about is herself. True words.

Of course they will ignore. It´s not just their job to do so; it´s a calling. If 0 stood at the podium in a clown costume juggling live hedgehogs, they´d say it was refreshing to see his innovative approach to public speaking.

All joking aside, it is pretty alarming when the President has checked out and appears to have lost his mind. He had access to some pretty scary stuff.

Obama has always been weird. He is just feeling less pressure to hide his malevolent, tormented personality. But far weirder than Obama are the people who voted for him in 2008 and then voted again for him after 4 years do incessant lies, incredible corruption, disastrous policies and blatant abuse of the public´s trust.

Hillary is more of the same, a malevolent person who is happiest when lying about her lies. She is a person who has willingly clung to the immoral and personally embarrassing coat tails of her husband to great wealth and undeserved fame while claiming she is the one woman capable of breaking the presidential glass ceiling.

If Obama is the King of Frauds, Hillary is its Queen in waiting. Sadly, too many Americans are willing to be their subjects,

For a narcissist, the response to disapproval is disengagement. Obama was OK as long as the people he hates disapproved. Now it´s becoming more obvious that a few liberals no longer adore him, so the wheels are coming off.

Love this article, and this most of all:

"Obama will not be the fourth president (if you count Nixon) to be impeached, but he may become the first to be led away by the hand to a nice, quiet place where he can get treatment. And that would make history, too."

Perhaps a lot of liberal women admired Hillary Clinton in spite of her abused wife syndrome. Surely, however, after the Monica debacle was exposed, by the time the family took that press photo walk to the helicopter with Bill hanging his head and holding on to the dog while Hillary marched ahead looking triumphant...surely by then even the most ardent women´s rights supporting female would have understood that there ought to be a limit to what a woman should endure in pursuit of personal ambition, that there should be one humiliation too far. When Hillary Clinton still remained in the marriage, supportive and defending her husband in order to protect her ownpolitical future, I would have expected women across the country to be appalled.

A.B. Stoddard of the Hill says in effect he has stopped being president and chooses to live in a world of his own, shutting out the problems that have become overwhelming, giving dinners where he talks about NBA ratings and where he will live when he leaves. And having stopped being president, he has also stopped being presidential -- Politico reported last week of a rally, "So punchy was he that he was leaning arms hanging off the front of his podium, telling a few hecklers to ´sit down´ and instructing the Secret Service not to bother removing them, Obama said he was feeling liberated. ... ´I don´t have to run for office anymore, so I can just let it rip,´ he said."

Am I the only one who sees this as impeachable? He is not faithfully executing the responsibilities of his job. In fact, he has chosen to retire while still in office, which leaves America without a President.

It has the same effect as being leaderless, so why has no one in positions of power seriously called this dereliction of duty?

We have one crisis, one failed policy after another, and POTUS is puttering and sputtering about being "called names".

Is he normal? Or do we have a mentally-deficient person in the White House? This isn´t funny. It´s life and death and we´ve got no President.

#5 I wish he would check out. All he has done is stop the pretense that he´s anything but what he has always been. And if we listened, he told us what he was about until the 2008 campaign kicked in and he began the pretense.

Not serious about doing the work of president

Dedicated to the transformation of our country from the myth of what I think he may actually believe it to be, some war mongering imperial doer of evil stealing from the third world to line our pockets.

beaten down by the failures regarding his ventures, he appears to have quit his own job.

That reminds me of something I heard at a management seminar years ago about dealing with personnel problems.

Speaker said that if you are lucky, a problem employee will "quit and go." If you are unlucky, a problem employee will "quit and stay."

We are unlucky.

Truth is, many of us get our information thru the internet on Lucianne or Drudge or Breitbart, and by the time the MSM highlights some news story, we´ve already known about it for a couple days.

This article says that Politico called Obama "punchy", but we´ve already read about his inappropriate laughter and seen the pictures of him nodding off in meetings, so it´s old news to us.

The media would like to ignore some things, but they are not the only source of news anymore.

Think about this: obama has turned every allie we had against us, he does everything he can to assist our enemies. He has pretty much started race wars in this country. He has destroyed the health-care system and jobs across the country and countless other disasters.

Now, he suddenly lies back in the weeds and lets all of this fester with no leadership to be found. This is part of the plan, let the country now tear itself apart and send in the military to ´put down these radicals.´ It´s coming people.

#13, What some people might be be laying the foundation for with the increasing talk of Obama being delusional is not impeachment by rather the Vice President and senior cabinet members invoking Article 4 of the 25th Amendment. Impeachment means a finding of malfeasance, is usually lead by the opposition, and is highly divisive. The 25th Amendment is invoked by his own people and would be like an intervention, telling the President he seriously needs professional help. Who can be against removing a burden from a sick man and getting him help?

Of course the late-night hosts/comedians want Hillary to run for president. They need more material and Hillary has so much baggage (literally and figuratively) that they won´t even have to try to write their jokes. It´s all there right in front of them. As for Obama, he will provide everything necessary for years and years of jokes after he leaves office. The comedians can´t wait.

Obama has not quit. He just doesn´t do what a president is expected to do. He views his priorities differently than any previous president. He is a hardcore lefty who believes the United States is the reason for all the problems in the world, and needs to be torn down and remade. So far, he has been successful. If he had actually quit, congress would have moved in to fill the void that would have been left behind. He is working very hard at blocking congress from doing anything useful.

FTA: Obama will not be the fourth president (if you count Nixon) to be impeached, but he may become the first to be led away by the hand to a nice, quiet place where he can get treatment.

Wouldn´t that be a sight!

FTA: The only girl and woman Hillary Clinton was ever concerned for was Hillary Clinton.

Yes. The masks hiding the essence of Obama and Hillary! have recently been lowered. What we see isn´t pretty. But it´s for real. The Nation, so long inured to political play acting, is beginning to shudder in belated recognition.

By his actions the president has effectively told us that he no longer wants to do the job to which he was elected. He´s bored, and just wants to hang loose taking pot shots at anyone who´s not giving him the requisite respect. But respect must be earned, and Obama has earned very little during his lifetime, least of all our respect.

Hillary! is fighting a losing battle pretending that she is a charitable, caring human being. Her cackling with boastful laughter about keeping a child rapist from doing hard time reveals a soul unconcerned with human decency. That, and her bare-faced lies to parents of the Benghazi Four ought to make her radioactive to an American electorate that by mow should have had a belly full of empty-souled leftist pols who feign decency every day. Eventually, the truth will out.

At the very end of Matt Bai’s New York Times Magazine feature about Gary Hart that could be titled “Hart-less: The Original Bimbo Eruption,” there’s a short passage that puts on full display the irrepressible presumption of liberalism—or perhaps it’s another example of Bush Derangement Syndrome. Here’s how the piece ends: “It’s what he could have done for this country that I think bothers him to this very day,” Lee [Hart] said. “Well, at the very least, George W. Bush wouldn’t have been president,” [Gary] Hart said ruefully. This sounded a little narcissistic, but it was, in fact, a hard premise to

With his decision to use force against the violent extremists of the Islamic State, President Obama is doing more than to knowingly enter a quagmire. He is doing more than play with the fates of two half-broken countries—Iraq and Syria—whose societies were gutted long before the Americans appeared on the horizon. Obama is stepping once again—and with understandably great reluctance—into the chaos of an entire civilization that has broken down. Arab civilization, such as we knew it, is all but gone. The Arab world today is more violent, unstable, fragmented and driven by extremism—the extremism of the rulers and those in

The 2014 November midterm elections are nearly here, and Democratic and Republican candidates across the country are bracing for the inevitable conclusion to months of campaigning. But even as certain forecast models downgrade the GOP’s chances for taking Congress’ upper chamber, several recent polls signal that Republicans will indeed walk away from November with many victories and perhaps a Senate majority. Here are the top nine polls from this week that hint at good news for the GOP: Colorado: In a Quinnipiac survey released Thursday, Rep. Cory Gardner, R-Colo., holds a 48 percent to 40 percent lead over Democratic Sen.

FOR THE sake of the cameras, President Obama assured Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko at a White House meeting Thursday that “not only do we support Ukraine’s sovereignty and independence in words, but we’ve also been supporting it in deeds.” If only that were true. The reality is that the beleaguered Ukrainian leader left Washington backed by considerable rhetoric from the Obama administration but little with which he can turn back the continuing Russian aggression against his country. In an emotional address to Congress, Mr. Poro­shenko described Ukraine as fighting for Western democratic values as well as its own survival, and he

The man who was the top Marine general from 2006 until his retirement in 2010 says President Barack Obama’s strategy to defeat the terrorist group the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria is doomed to fail. “I don’t think the president’s plan has a snowball’s chance in hell of succeeding,” retired Marine General James Conway, who served as the 34th Commandant of the Marine Corps during the end of the Bush administration and the beginning of the Obama administration, said at the Maverick PAC Conference in Washington, D.C.

The seven-month scandal that is threatening Roger Goodell´s future as NFL commissioner began with an unexpected phone call in the early morning hours on a Saturday in February. Just hours after running back Ray Rice knocked out his then-fiancée with a left hook at the Revel Hotel Casino in Atlantic City, New Jersey, the Baltimore Ravens´ director of security, Darren Sanders, reached an Atlantic City police officer by phone. While watching surveillance video -- shot from inside the elevator where Rice´s punch knocked his fiancée unconscious -- the officer, who told Sanders he just happened to be a Ravens fan, described

The family of Glen Doherty, the former Navy SEAL killed in the 2012 Benghazi terror attack, has filed a $2 million claim against the CIA and the State Department. Barbara Doherty, the CIA contractor and former SEAL’s mother, filed a claim last week with the two government agencies for $1 million each. The family does not believe there was adequate security at the U.S. diplomatic outpost and a CIA annex when they were attacked Sept. 11, 2012. Dean Boyd, a spokesman for the CIA, said the agency would have no comment on the potential litigation, the Associated Press reported Friday. The

The conventional wisdom concerning the comparative generalship of Robert E. Lee and Ulysses S. Grant was established almost immediately after the Civil War. Despite his role as, in the words of Frederick Douglass, “the rebel chieftain,” Lee has been portrayed as surpassing all others on both sides of the conflict not only in soldierly virtue but also in magnanimity and humanity. Indeed, for decades, no Civil War figure, not even Abraham Lincoln, has exceeded the reputation of Robert E. Lee. Lee has been described as the perfect soldier — a Christian and a gentleman as well as a peerless commander who

Ed Royce (R-Calif.), who chairs the House International Relations Committee, told The Post of the Kurds.

With little fanfare, President Obama has enjoyed remarkable success in his project to remake the federal courts in his own ideological image. How much more he achieves during his final two years in office depends in large part on whether Republicans win control of the Senate this November. Obama’s success is most marked in the federal courts of appeals, the intermediate level of the national judicial hierarchy. When Obama took office, only 1 of the 13 appellate courts had a majority of Democratic appointees. Now 9 do. Obama’s number of confirmed appellate nominees—53—only slightly exceeds President George W. Bush’s six-year total

I know I’ve written this post before but it’s something I’ve been thinking about amid all the “Condi for NFL commissioner!” stuff lately. (And besides, after two years, it’s due for an update.) Why commissioner and not GOP nominee? The 2016 field is “insanely wide open,” after all, and she’s got plenty to commend her — sterling academic credentials, years of diplomatic experience at the highest level, popularity among both wings of the GOP, and a trailblazer narrative that can trump even Hillary’s. She’d be seen, rightly or wrongly, as the “adult” in a field of Republican neophytes, someone whose

The American people’s reaction to Muslim thugs of the “Islamic State” ritually knifing off the heads of people who look like you and me boils down to “let’s destroy these bastards”—which is common sense. But our ruling class, from President Obama on the Left to The Wall Street Journal on the Right, take the public’s pressure to do this as another occasion for further indulging their longtime preferences, prejudices, and proclivities for half-measures in foreign affairs—the very things that have invited people from all over the planet to join hunting season on Americans. This indulgence so overwhelms our ruling class’s perception

Flashes of disagreement over how to fight the Islamic State are mounting between President Obama and U.S. military leaders, the latest sign of strain in what often has been an awkward and uneasy relationship. Even as the administration has received congressional backing for its strategy, with the Senate voting Thursday to approve a plan to arm and train Syrian rebels, a series of military leaders have criticized the president’s approach against the Islamic State militant group. Retired Marine Gen. James Mattis, who served under Obama until last year, became the latest high-profile skeptic on Thursday, telling the House Intelligence Committee

Devastating. That´s really the only way to describe Politico´s piece on DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz. (I hereby nominate her for Worst Week in Washington.) (Editor´s note: Three words -- Joseph. Robinette. Biden.) Based on interviews with DNC staffers -- both former and current -- the piece described Wasserman Schultz as something of a modern-day Tracy Flick: over-eager, disloyal and not shy about promoting her ambitions. It would be fair to say that she sounds like, well, a lot like other politicians. And this would be accurate.

The man who was the top Marine general from 2006 until his retirement in 2010 says President Barack Obama’s strategy to defeat the terrorist group the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria is doomed to fail. “I don’t think the president’s plan has a snowball’s chance in hell of succeeding,” retired Marine General James Conway, who served as the 34th Commandant of the Marine Corps during the end of the Bush administration and the beginning of the Obama administration, said at the Maverick PAC Conference in Washington, D.C. Friday, according to a source in attendance. Maverick PAC has described itself

WASHINGTON — Kurdish fighters battling ISIS desperately want more guns and armor, but they already have a secret weapon: The fanatics they’re fighting fear that if they get killed in combat by a woman, they won’t go to heaven. “They have many female battalions, as you know who fought very bravely,” Rep. Ed Royce (R-Calif.), who chairs the House International Relations Committee, told The Post of the Kurds. Royce, who met this week with the foreign minister of Kurdistan, cited recent reports of young female Kurdish troops “laughing” at ISIS forces they had turned back. “These ISIL soldiers apparently believed that if

The U.S Senate passed a bill Thursday evening that will give President Barack Obama the authority to arm moderate Syrian rebels, which is a key part of his plan to fight the jihadist group Islamic State (also known as ISIS and ISIL).

"I´m pleased that Congress, a majority of Democrats and a majority of Republicans in both the House and Senate, have now voted to support a key element of our strategy," Obama said.

That rare respiratory illness sickening children around the country continues to crop up in new places. It has been confirmed in 22 states, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said Friday, appearing in three states where it had not been previously: Georgia, Michigan and Washington state. These children are facing an uncommon enterovirus strain. While enteroviruses in general are quite common, this particular strain — enterovirus 68 — has not cropped up terribly often since it was first identified in 1962.

On Thursday In a session with the House Committee on Foreign Affairs, Secretary of State John Kerry was asked by Rep. Joe Wilson (R-SC) whether America was at war in Iraq and Syria. (Video) Kerry responded: “If you’re more comfortable calling it a war against this enemy of Islam then please do so. We’re happy to call it that.” So its official: America is at war with the enemy of Islam. However, strange bedfellows arise if the Obama administration so chooses to uphold Kerry’s claim that we are at war with the enemy(s) of Islam. The following displays that Secretary

When reporters began to grill Rice about whether the president had already given the authorization to the militarily to bomb in Syria, Rice kept repeating they would not be releasing information on the timing of those air strikes. Reporters continued to push with several trying to explain their question is if the president has already given authorization. Laughing uncomfortably Rice exited the room

The U.S. military campaign against Islamist militants in Syria is being designed to allow President Barack Obama to exert a high degree of personal control, going so far as to require that the military obtain presidential signoff for strikes in Syrian territory, officials said.
